HBO revisits the Louds for 'American Family' movie

Posted on

HBO and producer Gavin Polone are planning a film based on the Louds, the family featured on PBS’ 1973 documentary series American Family. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cinema Verite will be a behind-the-scenes look at the clan and the groundbreaking docuseries, which showed wife Pat asking husband Bill for a divorce and featured the coming out of their eldest son Lance, TV’s first openly gay character. David Seltzer (The Omen) will pen the script; Shari Springer Berman and Bob Pulcini (American Splendor) will direct.
